READ ALL ABOUT IT....

I absolutely loved every minute of making this card. So much of ME went into it.
The idea came about from the latest challenge from Saturated Canary, "Read All About It...".
I just had to make a card based on my favourite book (and I believe the BEST book ever written!), "To Kill A MockingBird". I have read it many times and I will make sure my kiddiwinks read it too. It makes me laugh and cry everytime I read it, and one of my favourite quotes from it is the standard I live by...."Never judge a man until you have walked in his shoes".
So....the card! I'm still in "using my stash" mode, so the paper is a piece I printed off ages ago (probably from Raspberry Road?!) layered onto Kraft card, with a diecut birdcage and little birdie, and I picked a Saturated Canary image which I thought was most like little Scout from the book, called "Hand-Me-Downs". Coloured in with my Promarkers. Finished off with brown and blue flowers, including poppies and roses (sentimental me, my daughter is called Poppi-Rose!) and some blue lace. And to be extra "bookworthy", I've made a matching bookmark which slides in and out of the top of the card. Clever huh?! lol
So there is my own little masterpiece!
Entering this in Saturated Canary Challenge "Read All About It".
Hugs and Happy Snowy Sunday!
